Kanye West blessed fans with yet another visual from his latest album DONDA -- and this time around, he pays tribute to his late mother, whom the chart topping album is named after.

Just days after releasing the video for "24", Ye' dropped the black and white visuals for "Donda Chant" via his Instagram over the weekend. The 61-second clip shows and aerial view of the rapper's childhood home centered in the middle of moving cars as images of the his mother, along with pics of baby Kanye, flashed on top.

Soul singer Syleena Johnson is the voice behind "Donda Chant", in which she can be heard chanting the late professor's name 58 times -- an homage to the age Donda West was when she passed away in 2008. The mesmerizing track acts as the opening cut to Ye's controversial 10th studio album.

Fans of DONDA took to Instagram to share their views on the new album visuals. Author R.H.Sin wrote:

"This is powerful. You didn’t have to include us in this journey but we are all happy and grateful for the opportunity to share in these moments. Thank you…Your mother is so proud of you Ye. And we’re proud of everything you’ve done thus far. Donda is redemption and truth. Growth and evolution."

Another fan added:

"[Donda Chant] will always be one of the most powerful and thoughtful openers. Really gives you a moment to reflect. To all those who we’ll only see again one day. With wings and crown."
